10 No-Mess Sensory Activities for Toddlers (3 of 11)

in Family Matters

Wet and Dry

Bathtime is lots of fun, but with a tub full of toys after a long day, it can be hard to get a child to really focus and learn about water. All you need for an easy daytime sensory lesson is a big pot with just a little bit of warm water at the bottom.

Before your child gets her hands wet, explain that now her hands are dry. Then once she gets in there to splash around, her hands are wet! Point out that the water is warm, and then the temperature changes as the water gets cold. Let her put some toys in the water. Do they sink or float? This is also a great time to show her that she can see her reflection in the water.
